After designing and creating specific items of clothing as part of the course, you will begin to construct your own custom-made garments under the guidance of a highly experienced tutor. Successful completion of the sewing course will equip you to tailor-make clothes for adults and children with confidence.
You will then learn to apply decorative features, fasteners and embroidery, and progress to using other more advanced sewing skills. Your trainers are experienced dressmakers and fashion designers.
As an added bonus, you'll get many of the tools you'll need.
